Notes:

My daughter has this plant. The leaves don’t feel dry like they look — she waters it once in a while… she’s not a huge plant caretaker. I love it and want one and so far I can only find some white sage that looks similar. The leaves on this plant seem smaller than white sage. Help!

    I’m not able to see these leaves clearly. I’m guessing only, maybe a species or cultivar in these two genera either small/pettite licorice (Plecostachys serpyllifolia, synonyms include Helichrysum petiolare microphyllum, H. serpyllifolia, and Gnaphalium serpyllifolium) or licorice (Helichrysum petiolare)? Maybe these images from links below could help you rule in or out of both genera. Best wishes! Link for P. serpyllifolia http://naturewatch.org.nz/taxa/78625-Plecostachys-serpyllifolia/browse_photos
